Egyptology Publications: Eyewitness series

- Pyramid

This examines the pyramids of Egypt and discusses the latest theories on their function and construction. It also provides a comprehensive survey on the pyramids belonging to other cultures such as the Mayan and Aztec pyramids of Central America and illustrates how the pyramid form has been carried on in modern architecture.

Published by Dorling Kindersley, London, 1994.
ISBN 0- 7737-2810-4

- Mummy

Although the word was first used to describe the embalmed, bandaged bodies of the ancient Egyptians, it now means any preserved body. If people die or are buried in the right conditions, they may become preserved by accident, such as in wet marshy conditions or in the freezing cold of the mountains or dried by the hot desert sands. This book examines mummies that have been discovered all over the world, preserved both naturally and artificially, by embalming in accordance with various religious beliefs concerning the afterlife.

Published by Dorling Kindersley, London,1992.
